Keywords:JIRCL: Journal for Interdisciplinary Research on Community Life, Center Of Community, e-Journal
Steven Harnad's subversive proposal was originally connected to help sharing our scientific output quickly and securing the antecedent rights, by removing barriers, unnecessary controls and regulations related to our printing, binding and shipping time and effort. We therefore should take full advantage of web-based infrastructures to subversive today's tribuary situation, for a better open-access community.
In this report, I briefly introduce the historical overview, its manners of operation, and the prospects and problems related with the administration of a repository based e-journal “JIRCL: Journal for Interdisciplinary Research on Community Life”. Although there are some challenges that needs to be solved, this repository-based e-journal achieved totally free of charge and therefore neither of APC nor academic faculty status are required for scholarly e-publishing. JIRCL offers a new direction in academic e-publishing in the context of outreach activity at a level of what a regional university can do.
